Remembering the Victims of Communism

On November 9, 1989, the Berlin Wall fell.  We should never forget why it was built and why it fell.  Remembering where we came from will tell us who we are.

The above video is an interview with author and historian Lee Edwards about the creation of the Victims of Communism Memorial dedicated to those who perished under Communist regimes between 1917 and 1989.

Fall of the Berlin Wall: the moment the barriers came down:

Approximately 2000 years ago, one man tore down another wall on a hill in Jerusalem.  That wall also separated a land of freedom from a land of slavery.  Actually, it was a curtain, and by his sacrifice he tore it in two:

And when Jesus had cried out again in a loud voice, he gave up his spirit.  At that moment the curtain of the temple was torn in two from top to bottom.  [Matthew 27:50-51].

Remember.  And tell the good news.
